MOTIVATION MONDAY: If you had have told me 10 years ago, 5 years, 2 years ago that public speaking would be an important part of my career – I would have given you the ultimate resting bitch face! Believe it or not, public speaking is one of my biggest personal fears. If people realized how paralyzing it was growing up for me – the knots in my throat, the tears before I had to present, the racing heart beat and yes I’ve thrown up before due to anxiety from stage freight. I’ve skipped class numerous on days I had to present and I’ve tried to sign up for Toast Masters countless times and couldn’t bring myself to do it. I was always conflicted because I have such an outgoing but Cali chill personality but couldn’t project information to an audience – and I used to beat myself up – a lot! . . . This last year – I realized that this type of fear is only paralyzing if you don’t have a passion! And because I’m strongly rooted in my passion – this healthy dose of fear becomes fuel. I still DESPISE public speaking … but I can’t fight the fact that I have a RESPONSIBILITY ✊🏾🌿 – and have always had a responsibility that I tried to ignore (hence why I used to do PR for ethical brands, so I could do this work but hide behind the scenes). I will probably always be afraid to speak in public – but my message is WAY bigger than me so I have to get over it! . . . We all have a responsibility to be active and leave behind a legacy! It can be family focused, community centered or shifting a societal consciousness. It doesn’t matter how big or small that legacy is! Every time I speak I have to stimulate my fear because I’ve always known what I was created to do – I just never knew how until now! Embrace your journey! Don’t fight your fears – work with them! 🖤🌿 . . . #motivationalmonday #mondaymotivation #healing #wellness #sustainability #speaking #fear #faceyourfear #influencer #ethical #ethicalfashion #climatecrisis #motivation #inspiration #domsconsciouscloset
